I am pleased to announce the release of GNU moe 1.11.

GNU moe is a powerful, 8-bit clean, console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings. It has a modeless, user-friendly interface, online help, multiple windows, unlimited undo/redo capability, unlimited line length, unlimited buffers, global search/replace (on all buffers at once), block operations, automatic indentation, word wrapping, file name completion, directory browser, duplicate removal from prompt histories, delimiter matching, text conversion from/to UTF-8, romanization, etc.

Moe respects your work. By default it won't automatically add, change, or remove not even one byte in your files. Moe is a WYTIWYG (what you type is what you get) editor.

Moe can easily edit thousands of files at the same time.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/moe/moe.html

The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/moe/ http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/moe/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.

The sha256sum is:

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending '.sig' to the URL. If the 'gpg --verify' command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 8FE99503132D7742

Key fingerprint = 1D41 C14B 272A 2219 A739  FA4F 8FE9 9503 132D 7742

Changes in version 1.11:

* Begin of text is now correctly defined as the position of the first non-blank character in a line, instead of the first non-whitespace character. This fixes the behavior of 'auto indent' and 'smart home'.

* As some operating systems and terminal emulators intercept the function keys, alternative key sequences have been implemented using Control-A and Control-Q. 'C-a 1' to 'C-a 9' work as F1 to F9. 'C-a 0', 'C-a a', and 'C-a b' work as F10, F11, and F12 respectively. 'C-q 2' works as 'C-q F2'.

* As a consequence of the previous change, Control-A no longer shows the online help.

* The new option '-2, --two-spaces', that tells moe to put two spaces after period when reformatting a paragraph, has been added.

  * The new search sequence '\T' (trailing whitespace) has been added.

  * UTF-8 codes are now shown as Uhhhh, not 0xhhhh.

* The command 'C-s g' (Show global status) now shows the number of buffers being edited, not the number of buffer handles.

* Pressing <Tab> in the file menu now shows the list of matching files even if there is only one, showing that a matching file exists.

* The new command 'C-s b' (toggle clock blinking) has been added. It enables/disables the blinking of the clock dots. Blinking is off by default.

* Recursive load now ignores some more non-text or non-source files by extension; ".bmp", ".elf", ".obj", ".xcf", ".zip", ".info", ".jpeg", ".class".

* The command 'F3' (load file) now shows feedback ( "loading..." ) and may be aborted with Control-C.

* The command Control-X (save and close) now updates the status line before exiting if closing the last buffer handle.

* The command Alt-Z (scroll down) now scrolls until only two lines are visible.

* The command 'C-k w' (write the block to a file) now asks before overwriting an existing file and works when writing from an unnamed read-only buffer.

* The UTF-8 decoder now converts some more characters (mostly Greek) and some alphabetic presentation forms ('ff', 'fi', 'fl', 'ffi', 'ffl', 'ft', and 'st'). It now also converts the 'latin capital letter sharp s (german)' to "SS".

* The emergency save triggered by an abnormal event now only saves non-empty buffers and only once even if any of them has multiple handles.

* The commands needed to set the text console in the right mode for moe have been documented in the manual.
